With news of the PS4 comes the inevitable flood of tech demos, processing power specs, controller pictures, and everyone’s opinion on whether it will suck or not. But what I cared about most was the new gameplay footage of Destiny and Watch Dogs. Even though they will be multi-platform, Sony’s press conference gave me all I needed.
First off is Destiny, the new game franchise being launched by Bungie. If you don’t know what games Bungie made you probably live under a rock that lives in the shadow of a larger rock. Having passed off the torch of their previous franchise to 343 Industries, Bungie is now undertaking what I have dreamt of for years. A MMO with the graphical and precision content of a triple A console game. Plus, It’s in the form of a first-person shooter. Dudes…. I am going to own at this game.
Promising multiple classes (including a “sorcerer”), quests that can be played with friends (in fact you can ONLY play the game when online), and no monthly subscription fees I am sold. I would kill you to play this game.
And then there is Watch Dogs, a new franchise being started by Ubisoft. Think Assassins Creed meets The Matrix with a sprinkle of Grand Theft Auto. Yeah.
It’s easier for you to just watch this game in action rather than me explain the fine details. And once again… I would kill you to play this game.
Did anything from Sony’s press conference (and announcement of PS4) peak your interest?
